    threeovens's Note:

    This recipe is meant to serve to your vegetarian guests at Thanksgiving, or elsewhere, to replace stuffing made inside the turkey. It calls for a cheese pumpkin which looks similar, in color, to a butternut squash, but is flatter and more fleshy than the sugar pumpkin. If it is not available, use whatever you can, but cooking time will need to be adjusted, so begin checking for doneness after 1 hour and 15 minutes. Adapted from "A Year of Celebrations" by Martha Stewart.
